Happy Pancake Day!!!

For those of you not lucky enough to have lived in Liberal, Kansas or Olney, England, today is the holiday known as International Pancake Day!!! One of the best holidays of the year. You actually get off from school, but you are up by choice at 6am to participate in the Pancake Breakfast. Then it is off to the Races, where we run the streets of Liberal in our head scarfs and carrying frying pans holding pancakes, racing our rivals in England for the best time. And don't forget to go to the parade in the afternoon!!

Yours truly ran the child race numerous times, taking first and third places! I still have my trophies!! And of course one of the best parts of winning is riding on a float during the parade.

This year we are actually closer to Olney, England!! It is only 1 hour north of London. We couldn't make it to Pancake Day this year, but we hope to next year. Wouldn't that be cool, to say we've actually been to Pancake Day in both Liberal and Olney!!

Pancake Day, 1968.
